Sustainable Operations Plan Outlines Campus Sustainability Goals

During Planning 302, Georgetown’s Director of Sustainability presented on the university’s sustainability operations plan, a part of the overall master plan, which integrates environmental sustainability into campus operations and business services.

The plan is organized into eight focus areas, with goals and key metrics for each focus area. The eight areas are:

  • Energy and Climate
  • Buildings and Built Environment
  • Food
  • Land and Grounds
  • Purchasing
  • Transportation
  • Water
  • Solid Waste and Materials

The goals were developed through a multi-semester, stakeholder-based campus sustainability planning process facilitated the Office of Sustainability. The Sustainability Operations Plan is a living document designed to support the the university’s core mission while helping realize Georgetown’s institutional commitment to sustainability. Now that a draft plan has been created, the Office of Sustainability will continue engaging campus stakeholders over the next year to finalize and adopt a plan.
